Ok just flew on the LA7 on the 401 server tonight and couldn't be happier with either choice.

The guys at the 401 server really know how to host a server. These guys are polite, respectful and welcome newcomers to their server. They fight very well as a unit and are very good pilots. Kraken and Osprey in particular are good guys. What a refreshing change from the smug little smart mouths that I see popping up on numerous servers lately. These guys have manners like the Brits! Maybe thats why they fly those darn Hurricanes!


Oh and the LA7. What an awesome machine. Why aren't there more people flying this baby? I typically fly only LW planes but after tonight I'm flying the LA7 whenever I can. Great speed, impressive guns god its better than se_!

Seriously the guys at the 401 are a class act group and anyone hosting servers should really fly on their servers to see how a server should be run. And if you have never flown Russian planes try the LA7, awesome firepower like the FW190 but faster and more nimble!

I posted on the very same observation earlier...the 401 server certainly is a great time. Check out "Just had a blast on HL"....down towards the bottom of page 1.

See you in the 401 sometime! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I hear that the patch is going to add some kick to the 20mm and 30mm cannons. While this will have the most effect on german planes, the 3x20mm La7 is going to become a real killing machine. Almost as much power as a 190, but in a nice tight little pattern

Me too! I have join the server on sunday. "401's" pilot are good.

If the host set the "cockpit always on" but with external view will be better.

Salute to 401's pilot.

See you in the sky.

Oh my, i have to correct me.

Just flew on that server. Shot a bomber down, flew away. that bomber got into the air again and got alt. i returned and fired again, killing the pilot and setting the plane to ruins.
Then that mongoose guy came along, shooting on the doomed plane as well. I don´t know if he knew the pilot was dead or not, but he clearly saw i was on that clearly finsihed bomber already. Well, trying to safe my kill i pulled up too late and crashed into the bomber.

Asking, in a friendly manner, if moongoose was liking to steal kills, he started personal insults to me and another guy who witnessed the incident.

To this point i thought the #401 guys woulndt tolerate this.
To my dissapointment i was wrong, as #401Badger was flying the bomber and kinda felt insulted by getting rammed, something i dislike myself, but something that can happen, and did happen here, as i have to admit.

i don´t think so it that´s areadon to back quiet heavy personal insults. As such i won´t join that server again.

My apologies for this ranting, but i feel kinda aggrivated at the moment. my kudos to everybody it may disturb.

Well thankyou to the positive posts. As to your post Bewolf id like to say that i dont care if I was killed, but having said that your issue was with MONGOOSE not I. YUP, I said a poor pilot doesn't have the ability NOT to miss a plane in a fight,happend to me allnight, got a little sick of it after a while to be honest.
You saw your kill being stolen buy 185thMONGOOSE, you decided to press home the attack again to regain the points after he shot rounds into me, and you flew right through me in doing so. I was dead level, pilot killed, and flying on and on not evading, so I have a hard time not believing it was an "accident", regardless I was already dead so it didnt matter.
AS for the 401 402 servers? Just so EVERYONE knows, JETS, if caught on the deck are fair game anywere anytime by any aircraft.

401 402 let people take off and get speed before they are engaged to the best of our situational awarness.

We let people land, with the exception at times of enemy aircraft landing on our own home base
(vulchers are despised and we have had people land and shoot respawning aircraft REMEMBER ILUVPIES??? nuff said)

Anyhow come and play or not, dont matter to me. But in 401 402 follow the rules or get booted by whomevers hosting.Regard the host Make it FUN, Remember its a game,not reallife... but be honourable.

Badger, whatever happend there with the ramming, be assured it was not intended. But you may be aware a 262 sometimes is faster then you can predict. For that ramming you have my apologies nevertheless.

But to allow mongoose to rant in this personal manner, not only against me, but against BSxx as well, does not speak for a honourable server. With all due respect, but this mongoose guy went to the lowest level, and every sincere Host would have done something about it. I did´t react to his provocations in my honest believe in the host to resolve the situation. This didn´t happen.
In fact you supported him just because i crashed into you, and you seemed somehow offended by that. Not only that he tried to steal a kill, which in my book is low already, but then you accused me of circling over your airfiled, something that guy did as well, without him being critizised.

I realy hope you see my point in here, that this, your behaviour, was not led by propper honorable behaviour, but your anger about having been rammed by me (by accident).

oooohkay. just for the record, i am relaxed by now, dont want to turn this into a slugfest, I just wanted to get some points corrected. Dont take this as an insult or offense, but simply my impression. What you make out of it is up to you.

La7 already is a little killing machine. Last night I sawed a wing off a 190F8 with either 1 or 2 20mm in a deflection shot, only pinched the trigger and saw a puff and his wing was gone. Never had a german 20mm do that in IL2:FB.

Ha!
Check this out: usually I fly on Bogey server because of good company you have in there and also because of a pretty good ping. Usually I fly the Jug , somehow alone which means I'm pretty much dead meat to all those Yaks , Bf's and FW's. i score kills mostly to bombers and unaware low pilots. one day I found myself chased by this Hurricane. i have a hard time trying to remember names. he was clearly faster than me coz i was climbing , he was diving. When i heard bullets on my wings I started to dive , he got really closer , under .3 I believe. Checked the altimeter , was 1500 m so I said that i haave to stall. full rudder , stick back , a beautiful controlled stall. What happened next was a huge explosion. This Hurri flight right into me! but i'm 100% sure that was not with intention. Was the first time when I was doing deliberate stall online , so it was a surprise even for me. Nevertheless , really cool stuff. By the end of the day , that hurri was credited with another kill. And that was my Jug.

<S> All

I would have to say our servers are VERY respectable! We treat everyone as if they were a fellow brother of the 401/402. If we ask some one to leave, its, "Sir can you leave"! Disrepect is not an option.. I have flown with the 401/402 guys for about a month now and let me tell ya, "There is no other guys that I would rather be flying with right now".. We fly well because we fly together..We trust each other with our virtual lives!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I guess my point is that we enjoy you fellas coming into our servers and testing our abilities.. We wouldnt host if we didnt want to fly fly with great pilots as yourselves.. You make us better pilots flying against us and in turn we make you better pilots.. We hope to cya in the 401/402 servers..

Salute All!

My only thing with the LA-7 is that the control surfaces are a little fragile. To many times I've had to run after taking one bullet to the rudder or aelirons (spell check!! spell check damn it)

Anyone who flies anything other than a Real PlaneT is a n00b

Or alternatively, anything that normally wore a swastika during WWII.

Be assured that I didnt see all the text as I was AFK after the ramming. Like I said dead is dead I dont care...I hit refly, you did hang the base to the North West and then Mongoose was there with you too...no probs, I just find it "newbish" personally, and I know your not at that skill level so I found it frustrating....

and to get my point across, as soon as you host a server with AI bombers, everyone wants to get that 400 points bydowning one, so I had (not you) idiots vulching, ramming me all nite long inmy and in KLINKS server...Pretty frustrating for me.... I willjust make a bigger map next game.

Yeah, the 401 and 402 guys are the best.

A couple more nice things about their servers...

1) The host is always there, they will not put up an untended server.

2) They are quick to put 401 or 402 members on the "short" side for balance.

We do appreciate all of the positive comments being given here... Duncun, great point you bring up about having a server that is attended while the game is in progress because thats badgers #1 rule for hosting a 401 402 server... You will always have someone there with the ability to boot a Team killer.. We also, as a rule, do not allow cussing in the server..Are rules for the most part lead to a great game to be had by all.. And we are happy how things run generally....

It is a great pleasure for me to fly with 401 squadron as it affords me to experience great courtesy and civility within the sim world. Not to mention the raising of my skill level.

I find that the squad leads by example when communicating with other pilots and in the way in which they conduct themselves on a regular basis.

For example, we would NEVER shoot a pilot with wheels down on final yet many times this has happened to me even though it clearly states no vulching in the rules of the server. I've been shot down by allowing a pilot just taking off to gain sufficient airspeed and altitude before engaging him. While this cost me it nevertheless is appropriate behaviour for the squad.

We've been accused of being wussies for flying the Hurricane by one particular pilot. We fly the Hurricane as it is historically correct for the 401st squadron history.
I'm sure the patch is going to have some effect here.

I really welcome all the pilots who join the server and am really impressed how quickly they join forces to combat the 401st. They really get into the scenario very quickly.

But most of all . . . . the online friendship of many of the guests who really appreciate first rate combat combined with first rate courtesy.

S! to all,
Catseye

I have to add my 2 cents here.

In your post Beowolf you state that you saw someone trying to "steal" your kill so you pressed the attack to regain the kill points. A collision occured as a result which you claim was unintentional. Let me give you some advice if I may. You will become a MUCH better pilot if you forget about the points thing and just concentrate on good flight habits and using sound tactics in your dogfights. All of us in the #401/02 Cdn. squadron know who the good pilots are without having to look at the point totals.

If you deal with other pilots respectfully and with the right tone in your text most times you will recieve the same in return.

putting your weels down trying to land and gettingshot down by the plane that has been on your six the whole time is not vulching, landing is the art of the point ***** if you try to land with enemy around you deserve to get shot down, its optional you choose to trade speed and height to land.
